First serious Czech SF movie. Futuristic attempt to simulate future.
Ikarie XB1 is the first Czech SF movie. It was released in black and white only. The story relies to some extent on one of Stanislav Lem's books. The movie is still appreciated not only among science fiction fans in Czechia, but mainly because of its high ambitions. The movie not only shows a trip to proxima centauri, but it also tried to predict future music and dance.
Due to the time it was created (early 60ies) there are some ideological compromises to the communism and cold war.
